The meetings and events and travel industries are two of the primary contributors to global climate change because of the nature of our work. We are in the business of bringing people together. While that allows us to create connection and foster change, it also means we are significant contributors to the climate challenges the world is facing today. Fighting the stark realities of climate change means taking a hard look at the impact of our industry’s footprint.
